A little about me...
I'm kind -- nearly always. Attentive, courteous, considerate? Yes, I'm those things plus compassionate, generous and humane. My favorite charities are the ASPCA and Humane Society. I enjoy retirement and give back as I'm able.
This year I checked off a bucket list item when a novel I wrote was published.
Sure, like most guys I'm into sports, especially baseball (Detroit Tigers) and college football (Michigan State, tho I do pull for UGA). I'm a fan of classical in the car, otherwise classic rock, Celtic, bluegrass & light jazz. I visit most the History Channel, CNN, PBS and NPR for current events and insights. Movies with "awwww" moments and happy endings, it's all good. I'm affectionate and seek first my partner's satisfaction. That blend is me.
Will we LIKE each other long-term, have fun, respect opinions, share fun stories? Will there always be a spark from a look, a touch, a kiss?
My companions are an adoring black Labrador who NEVER barks and a rescue cocker , deaf and blind but my snuggle bunny. So, "Must Love Dogs" applies.
I've loved before but a lifelong attachment escaped me, as it did you. I want to be in love again. I want to look longingly into your eyes and say, "I really do love you."
About the one I'm looking for...
You should share my overall views on partnering (never-ending conversation, respect, physical attraction), but also have interests or passions not necessarily my own. Most importantly, you must agree that a win-win can be found in almost any situation.
If, however, you happen to believe Earth is only 9,000 years old, if you're looking for someone who reads his Bible and attends church, I'm not your guy. To the contrary, if you have multiple prominent tattoos or body piercings other than earrings, if you can recite the last five years of a soap opera, if you believe Ronald Reagan was fabulous, I'm probably not your guy.
You have a social conscience, not merely cluck-clucking that it's too bad but occasionally pitching in. In sports, unless it involves your team, you generally pull for the underdog. Your friends remark emphatically that you show loyalty, compassion and objectivity.
You've rarely been caught in a lie and when you were, it was probably to protect someone else. You laugh heartily at a good joke and might have a couple of your own at the ready. People who know you only slightly would say, "She's probably a very good person." People who know you well would say, "She's a very good person, I know for sure."
I'd just like to add...
I'm a lifelong Detroit Tigers fan. Can't help it, I grew up with their AM radio broadcasts in my bedroom. I do support the Braves (They're in the other league!) but basically I'm a Tiger. Baseball is the best of all the sports; more things can happen to change the outcome. A team that wins only six times in ten is headed for the playoffs. And except for an occasional scrum, it's a gentleman's game.

My Top Interests:
By walking (fairly fast) 30+ mi/wk I've remained trim and fit. Did one half-marathon and looking toward another.
Nature and Outdoors
My newish suburban home comes with many flowering bushes & trees. I'm set up for comfy tent camping and yearn to revisit some favorite North American sites.
I admit to being a fan of chick flicks: Meg Ryan, Sandra Bullock Julia Roberts, et al. Love quiet winter movies that develop characters but also sci fi and spy thrillers.
